Consider making a gift to the Houston Botanic Garden in honor of the people in your life for their birthday; wedding anniversary; the birth of a baby or grandchild; or just to show you care. We also receive beautiful gifts made in memory of a loved one or friend. Tribute gifts of all sizes are a kind, thoughtful, and generous way to remember or celebrate someone while contributing to a botanic garden that benefits our community.
Your recurring gift – whether it’s monthly, quarterly, or on whatever schedule you prefer – directly supports the Garden’s mission to enrich lives through discovery, education, and the conservation of plants and the natural environment. By signing up for a recurring gift schedule, you are showing your steadfast and leadership support to the Garden and ensuring that educational programs inform and inspire, plants are nurtured, and the gardens and natural ecosystems continue to grow and thrive!

Planned gifts—in which individuals include the Garden as a beneficiary in their wills or estate plans—are essential to providing the long-term financial support needed to sustain the Houston Botanic Garden. These gifts help to fund our educational and community outreach programs, maintain the highest professional horticulture standards, and bring delight and beauty to the lives of all who visit.
Donated memberships give access to individuals or families who might not otherwise be in a position to visit the Garden. Recipients of donated memberships receive the same unlimited general admission—and opportunities to discover, learn, and connect that come along with it—as those who purchase memberships for themselves. A donation of membership—at any level—is 100% tax-deductible and will help make the Houston Botanic Garden an amazing place where everyone can participate.
If your employer has a Matching Charitable Gift program, you can double your donation! Choose the Houston Botanic Garden this year for your tax-free qualified IRA rollover distribution.
Link your Kroger Shopper’s Card to the Houston Botanic Garden, and the Kroger Community Rewards program will send a percentage of your total to the Garden every time you buy groceries.
